years ago and there was a picture of him standing next to doing bear hugs with george bush and john mccain saying who are the thorns and who are the roses. this guy was deep into the heart of gop territory. so his comments back then don't surprise me at all. he's not there today, and i think people need to understand what an independent-minded man he is to have left that kind of close relationship with mccain which people aren't remembering and also george w. bush and how close he was to the heart of, you know, gop bias about these issues at this time. that's why i think his independent track and walk today has been important and so misunderstood. >> thanks for reminding us the opposition to same-sex marriage and rights generally is under the platform as we speak. and hormel was representing so that point got through. jim frederick, thanks for joining us tonight. >>> up next, an attempted coup if you will. to derail a movement off the tracks. although i think they have a lot of influence. look at the cliff. the tea party will not act to keep the government going. this is "hardball," the pl
but the key here is the performance from jessica chastain. a lot of controversy right now. senator john mccain came out and said the torture scenes are grossly inaccurate. see the movie for yourself. it is just a movie but it is apparently based on firsthand accounts. that is my number four of the year. >> i see moonrise kingdom. if you haven't seen rushmore or bottle rockets, i love this film. it is beautifully shot. it has a build where you can appreciate the film making. >> and number two. >> i'm getting a lot of hate for this one. >> cabin in the woods? >> it is a game changer. it is funny. jaw dropping hilarious at times. very violent. it appears to be a normal movie about teenages are going to a cabin in the woods. once the last 0 minutes hits, your jaw will drop. it is one of the few films that i wish i could rewatch and have a video camera on my face just to see my jaw hit the floor. my number two of the year, cabin in the roads number one. >> yes, shocker. it is django unchained. best movie tarantino has done since pulp fiction. the most romantic film he has written since true romance
-presidential candidate pierre >> why? >> not a surprise -- candidate. >> why? >> not as surprised as john mccain paused. they played a very much to the base of the party and they needed to broaden out his appeal. there were always trying to grapple with the next challenge on the theory that a major step moving 1 foot in front of the other, just being on the ballot with barack obama because of all of the conventional wisdom you had cited earlier was enough. so the game was just to get to the next square. i think they had concerns about their convention, which was a very conservative group, representing many different candidates. they never fully embraced romney. i felt that the ryan choice was in part an effort to make sure that that yvette went well. t went well.even t it played in closer to the house republicans who -- congress was pulling 9%, 10%. every poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4%. so to pick someone who he identified as the intellectual leader of the republican party was clearly a very significant leader of that caucus and was surprising to me. brian was so identified with the pre
dianne feinstein, carl levin, as well as republican john mccain whose own experiences as a p.o.w. in vietnam have made him an outspoken critic of torture. now, since most people have not seen the film yet, let me explain a little bit. the torture scenes, which there are more than one show cia interrogators waterboarding, humiliating, and abusing detainees. in the movie, these interrogations do result in crucial information in the search for osama bin laden. now, i would not say that the film actually glorifies torture, but the cia operatives are not squeamish about what they're doing. at a later point in the film, one of the officials complained about president obama's decision to stop the detainee program. now, in a letter to sony, which is the studio behind the film, the senators say that "zero dark thirty" is, quote, perpetuating the myth that torture is effective. they argue that a still classified report proves they called the coercive interrogations did not result in any information that led to bin laden's capture. here's what else they had to say in the letter. they sa
the way along with folks likes john mccain to restore our -- to vietnam. it sent a powerful message to congress. over the years john has earned the respect and confidence of leaders around the world. he is not going to need a lot of on-the-job training. he has arned the respect and trust of his colleagues, democrats and republicans. i think it's fair to say that few individuals know as many presidents, prime ministers or grasp our foreign policies as firmly as john kerry and this makes him a perfect choice guide american diplomacy in the years ahead. >> "washington journal" continues. host: standard asked is politics editor with the washington times and he is here to talk to us about the fiscal cliff. what's next. so let's get to it. on friday you had the lead story with the headline boehner's plan fails to win over g.o.p. the collapse is a serious blow to house speaker john boehner who hoped to gain leverage in his discussion with president obama and signals conservative republicans are inwilling to stomach any rise in tax rates even on those making more than $1 million which was m
not bode well for the trial balloon of chalk .eguck hagel we have seen john mccain say they are going to vote for him. chuck hagel has been questioned by a number of republicans. lindsey graham is considered a more moderate republican. there is a concern with hagel and the pro-israel lobby. they tried engagement with iran for the first year of the administration and went to the toughest sanctions in history. hagel has been an opponent of those sanctions. if he changed his view, i think that would improve his chances. look at where he is on the foreign policy debate. obama has taken positions that are more to the center than hagel. host: if senator kerry becomes secretary of state, what does he bring? guest: john kerry will have to navigate the new relationship with political islam. as countries open up more and become more democratic, part is affiliated with the muslim brotherhood will have so far done very well. we're just at the beginning of the kind of new face with political is long. the united states has had a relationship with the muslim brotherhood for 100 years. that is often
together where they answered the same exact questions as john mccain and president obama did before president obama became president. many people loved that forum because they were asked the same exact question and it wasn't really a debate format and then romney and obama for whatever reason, if it was warren's decision or not, they did not do that this time around. this is the most forthright i've seen rick warren be when asked a political question. >> clayton: yeah, wasn't holding back. he usually do not want to weigh in too terribly much on political questions and tries to elevate the conversation, which he did here as well. but i think that just shows his frustration when you have pastor warren talking that way. it's troubling. fingers crossed. >> gretchen: let's do some headlines now. we have a fox news alert. nato confirming a civilian u.s. contractor shot dead by an afghan police woman in kabul. authorities are treating it as a possible inside job again. at least 52 members of nato forces have been killed this year alone in the so-called green on blue attack where is we trai
. it was advocated by the john mccain and the wounded warriors and the chamber of commerce and john kerry and bob dole. it was voted down including five votes from former colleagues of bob dole despite his appearance just out of the naval hospital on a wheelchair. it was all over what the senate foreign relations committee had a rare -- record indicating the black helicopters were not coming. this was not some crazy requirements on america. it had already been the standard. it was the thing that 126 other countries have ratified. it went down. i am still trying to understand the opposition. >> what do you think? >> i think it is fear. that is why we did it is fear. -- it is fear. someone is able to hike this notion that we are going to one ratifyingernment by citin this treaty that really ratifies our law for decades. we operated just fine. even the chamber endorses it. there is this fear of the government, the fear of being required to be accountable for having health insurance, at the so-called mandate, even though there is help if you need it. >> there is a velocity of information through both
advisor to senator john mccain's presidential campaign. thanks to both of you. good to see you. >> thank you for having us on, doug. >> good to see you. good morning. >> julian, let's start with you. do you think president obama wants us to go over the fiscal cliff? >> nobody wants us to go over the fiscal cliff. the estimates show that if we go over the fiscal cliff it could cost us some where between 1 and 2 gdp points. nobody thinks it is a good idea. every single poll including the "wall street journal" and pugh has shown that the american public overwhelmingly by the order of 70% want a balanced approach. of the $2 trillion in deficit reduction goal, a trillion, half in revenues and a trillion the other half in spending cuts. in fact, that is where most economists and deficit reduction experts are. the idea of balance. that is where the election, the american people were, the president campaigned on this issue and that is where john boehner was a week ago. a trillion in tax revenues and a trillion in cuts and took that to his own republican caucus and they were unwilling to support
. senator john mccain on twitter calling the general one of the great american heroes. we thank him for his service. stormin norman, as he was called, was a big man who left a big legacy. with us this morning is another general, general james spider marks joining us from virginia via skype. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> you know, stormin norman is what i remember about general norman schwarzkopf. a name he earned. a "time" magazine correspondent once called him a man with a john wayne swagger and a growl like a grizzly. is that how you remember him? this truly was a 20th century american military hero general schwarzkopf was a bigger than life man. his nickname personified that. it was a label he would protest openly. he was a humble man. what he-when you think about what he was asked to do, you keep it in context. the army had gone through this incredible turmoil post vietnam. i was a young lieutenant during that period. our army doctrine grew, it emerged. it was validated by general schwarzkopf in the deserts of kuwait when he ousted saddam's military. he was the significant ma
's credibility. does anyone else remember others? there was this notion -- they released this story -- that john mccain was having a relationship with a woman. they had heard in a very sexually provocative dress on the on-line edition, and a dress her up for the next one. this woman was a kind of lobbyist, but there was nothing in there that never proved that mccain was compromised. if mccain had a relationship with this woman, it was between him and his wife, and there was nothing -- he had not touched on anything that was politically important. they sort of backed away from that. it just lowered the temperature, again, of what we might call their bodily communication wait -- weight. there are other cases, the duke across scandal was another embarrassment. -- lacrosse scandal was another embarrassment. they did not cover themselves in glory, but the woman who claimed to be rich was not raped. it goes on like this. they also had a story about why caroline kennedy did not get the nomination, and that is when they also mentioned that she did not pay her taxes or something, but nobody put any recor
accurate. the c.i.a. and pentagon and senators diane fine stein and john mccain have been extremely critical of the pictures depicting terrorists. and they say torture did not lead to the capture and killing of osama bin laden. >>> an early christmas prevent for the oakland zoo. the big -- an early christmas present for the oakland zoo and the way they will spend it. >> a brief break in the steady rain this morning. we will have a look at what you can expect coming up.

feinstein, carl levin, john mccain, all of whom sent a letter to sony pictures calling the film grossly inaccurate and misleading. "the new york times" is now reporting that cia act director michael morrell sent out an agency-wide letter criticizing it. >> it is no question that the -- political drama around this movie is added to the buzz and made it as interesting as the film itself. i guess in the -- in the -- lit help drive interest into this thing but there's also a negative which is the fact that there's been so many of these political complaints that it could hurt the film at oscar time. lot of people will be voting for best picture, you know, may vekd thoughts because they -- they have this sense from, you know, authoritative sources that there is misleading and -- harmful position. >> can i ask you quickly of focus on this lone wolf character maya who is credited with the tracking down of bin laden. was this the case in reality? >> this is a very accurate portrayal. the woman is a real person and not a composite. she is still at the cia and under cover. a woman in her 30s who w
